iPhone 12 models offer the most 5G bands on any smartphone, with the broadest 5G coverage worldwide. Models in the US support millimeter wave, the higher frequency version of 5G, allowing the iPhone 12 to reach speeds up to 4Gbps, even in densely populated areas. iPhone 12 models also feature Smart Data mode, which extends battery life by intelligently assessing 5G needs and balancing data usage, speed, and power in real-time.
The iPhone 12 features an all-screen Super Retina XDR displays that stretch further to the edges, with systemwide color management for industry-leading color accuracy. It delivers a 2 million-to-1 contrast ratio for true blacks, and immersive HDR viewing experience for high-definition video, photos with more detail, providing nearly twice the peak brightness of the iPhone 11.
It has an industry-leading IP68 rating for water resistance up to 6 meters for up to 30 minutes and is protected against everyday spills, including coffee and soda.
The advanced camera system features the Ultra Wide camera and a new Wide camera with an ƒ/1.6 aperture, providing 27% more light for low-light photos and videos. It offers Night mode and faster-performing Deep Fusion on all cameras — TrueDepth, Wide, and Ultra Wide — for improved photos in any environment.
Brighter pictures and better contrast is now available for photos shot in low-light settings with Night mode, and more texture and less noise in Deep Fusion photos. Smart HDR 3 uses ML to intelligently adjust the white balance, contrast, texture, and saturation of a photo for remarkably natural-looking images.
